Juanes Performs at Concert Celebrating Colombian Independence

Any Colombianas out there? Colombia celebrated the bicentennial anniversary of their independence with a flurry of activities on July 20th. But the highlight of the day was a concert attended by around 10,000 people in Quibdo, the northwestern capital of Colombia's Choco department. 

As one of the over 1,000 concerts called the Gran Concierto Nacional (Grand National Concert), Colombian singer Juanes and Choco-born Tanya Maku performed, even getting together for a duet for "Fotografia." Juanes was clearly moved by the event, tweeting: "Colombia, estar aqui me llena de luz y ganas de hacer cosas! gracias por todo su cariño siempre!!" (Colombia, being here fills me with light and makes me want to do things! Thank you for your love always!!)
